‘Superghetto’ is the highly anticipated follow-up to the debut effort ‘Harlan & Alondra’ and Los Angeles native Buddy is celebrating his pandemic bounce back as his sophomore album carries a new life of energy following a long period of uncertainty.
Pulling up to the Power 106 studios to chop it up with co-hosts Letty, Teddy Mora, and Javen of the Power Mornings show, Buddy details how his new album came together and the growth he’s experienced from his solid debut effort. With songs like “Hoochie Mama” as a reminder to always enjoy your life, Buddy’s project is a result of much music created during the covid pandemic and during the return to somewhat normalcy. The “Wait Too Long” rapper reminds the Morning Show that he’s surrounded himself with an electric group of people that allow him to explore new perspectives and have opportunities to learn new things. One of those people was the late Nipsey Hussle.
Speaking on Nip, Buddy admits that the celebrated LA King helped him elevate his thinking and even shared a book list with him, which he hasn’t quite finished reading yet.
Buddy goes on to speak on his love for shows like the Zendaya led “Euphoria,” why he will choose Beyonce’s deep cut ‘Resentment” over Tupac’s “Gangsta Party,” having a slight altercation during this year’s Super Bowl, getting Dr. Dre to clear a sample from a tweet, and much more.
